What is ADHD?

ADHD (Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) is a prevalent neurobehavioral disorder, affecting approximately 13% of youth in Alabama. It manifests in challenges with attention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity among children and adults. While the exact cause of ADHD remains uncertain, research suggests a strong hereditary component.

What are the symptoms of ADHD?

ADHD affects the prefrontal cortex part of the brain, which helps you make decisions, plan things out, and control your impulses. It's basically in charge of things like thinking, problem-solving, and behaving in ways that are appropriate for different situations. Think of it as the CEO of your brain, guiding and managing everything you do. This is why the symptoms seen in ADHD include:

Difficulty stopping ourselves from acting impulsively

Struggle to switch between tasks or activities

Trouble controlling emotions and reactions

Difficulty in starting a new behavior or habit

Problems with remembering information as we learn

Challenges with planning and organizing tasks

Difficulty staying focused and checking progress while doing something

Struggle to monitor feelings about tasks or activities
